Longstreet was Lee's "War Horse." He pleaded with Lee to do the flanking maneuver and Lee brushed him off. Lee thought Meade being new to command would make a mistake and by being aggressive it would bring that about. I don't think Stonewall Jackson would have been any more convincing than Longstreet in convincing Lee to outflank Meade.
